Over 40 miles of recreational trails parallel to the Trinity River in Fort Worth, Texas, comprise the Trinity Trails system. These mostly flat trails are a mix of concrete, asphalt, and loose gravel and are utilized by pedestrians and cyclists alike. The trails intersect at river crossings, low water crossings, path forks, and under bridges. The concrete trails are usually occupied by cyclists, with the occasional runner and walkers. Pedestrians should be aware of cyclists on the trails, who will generally call out if they are passing on the left or right. Runners and walkers generally utilize the loose gravel trails (which changes back and forth between asphalt and gravel) because portions of these trails are lined with trees and large stones, creating a more serene and shaded atmosphere. The trail is well maintained with water fountains (pet-friendly fountains available), benches, picnic areas, and a fishing pier. There are no pedestrian lights on the trails, so runners should wear reflective gear when running at night. Parking is free at all trailheads, except for the areas near downtown Ft. Worth. The parking meters are free after 6pm on weekdays, weekends and holidays. Depending on the season and time of day, the trail will get very congested with runners, cyclists, and walkers. For those looking to get in a long run or ride, the Trinity Trails system is a fantastic resource!
